    Eric's sketchbook - From N00B to PRO (hopefully!)

    Hi!
    Well, I've been checking out CA for quite some time now and I decided to finally sign up. My name is Eric-Anthony, 17 years of age and I'm here to become a better artist. I have just recently started painting digitally with a tablet and it seems very difficult but I guess thats O.K. I will be posting both traditional and digital sketches.

    It's my goal to reach the potential of a professional artist, and I thought I'd share my daily sketches here, to receive some critiques that will boost up my improvement.

    I hope to receive a lot of crits and advice as that is very important to me.
    Thx in advance!

    Welcome to CA. That's a fun painting. The only thing I can say of it with my limited experience is that everything seems to be made of the same material. His glasses and his skin, for instance, both appear to be made of the same mysterious fleshy substance. If that is what it looked like after the guy's tutorial cool, but that's just something I noticed.

    It does have much character, thought, which is great.

    Keep painting, drawing, or whatever you prefer.

    Thank you very much for the comment
    Well, the painting in the video looked a lot better i'd say xD. I will work on colors and materials in my next painting! the skin is very hard to paint as i never get a realistic result btw this is my 2nd painting with my tablet

    Ok so here are some more sketches, mostly figure studies and some random stuff xD
    my shading isn't very good so I'll work on that some more.
    Sketches like these take me about 30 minutes.

    nice portrait you have in the first post.

    as for your most recent wip here, I suggest you pay attention to the underling structure of the face--her skull, and how it makes her face shaped the way it is.

    i like your stuff my friend. though on that old man painting, it looks a little out of place to have such a textured background. i would save textures for a more dynamic piece, i could see that looking better without it. (just so the focus is more on your painting.)

    and a crit for your most recent painting: there is going to be a lot of shadow inside her eye socket (between her right eye and nose). also, listen to a la bapsi.

    and keevy, if your going to define the pupil, make it smaller. it looks like shes on LCD or something right now. though i didnt notice that until keevy pointed it out

    keep it up

    keevy39 ye i agree, it seems kinda big now that im looking at it.. i actually wanted it to be big but not "too" big of course, so i will def work on that.

    avocado thx for the help, i will re-do the background and post a pic of it later.. i also worked on the girls face since my last post and i guess it looks better now. still have to find out how to paint her though ^^


    To-do list:
    -Work on the background of "old man" painting
    -Edit the girl's eye
    -Finding out how to paint hair


    Here's how far i am atm, will continue working on it tomorrow..
